Psychology of Evil – TED talk

http://www.ted.com/talks/philip_zimbardo_on_the_psychology_of_evil.html

What a story. Really delves into so many issues we read about every day. Power without accountability corrupts. There are so many places where power resides, and, the question of to whom the power holders are accountable is the ultimate question in my mind. I’ve always felt that it’s with all of us – ordinary citizens. Not the media, not the politicians, not even the jurists (many of whom seem tied to a political agenda); Media, politics, the judicial system – power resides there and, it’s up to all of us to call it to account. Poverty, environmental disaster, war, anything evil – raises its head when we don’t.
